@calasus40: I will see if this radio is in the books I have. I acquired a bunch of repair items a few years back on radios and tvs. Give me a week or two to try and locate it.

My chum Javi Garcia found the scxhematics as a PDF online, but if you have a full up book that woudl be even better (assuming you wish to donate it to the cause, of course :-)

@kfield: What's that white thing on the floor to the right of the radio? Some sort of sculpture of a head?

That's actually a carved wooden butler holding a tray -- it's closer than you think because it's actually stood right next to the big chair -- it holds my breakfast gin-and-tonic for me LOL

Re: Does your Grundig radio have a graphic equalizer?

@zeeglen: I seem to recall the similar Grunding of my parents back in the mid 50's had a row of 5-6 knobs at bottom center which controlled various audio frequency bands.

Yup -- this one has exactly the same thing -- I can't wait to get this little beauty up and running...

I seem to recall the similar Grunding of my parents back in the mid 50's had a row of 5-6 knobs at bottom center which controlled various audio frequency bands.  The visual indications were small beads tied together with red elastic strips behind the glass panel.  As the knobs were adjusted the beads moved up or down about 1-2 cm, the elastics stretched and followed to form a mechanical visual display of the resulting frequency resonse.

@mlise: Tube circuits are pretty easy to fix, even for a digital guy. Replace all the caps. Replace all the tubes.

Well, that sounds easy enough LOL

@vandamme0: If you feel brave, you can put it on a variable autotransformer and slowly crank it up. Once the rectifier tube lights up enough to work...

I'm going to pass all of this advice onto my chum Ivan in the hopes that he will actually be making it work :-)
